  • Nudity Ban

    I was reading the nudity ban story on here. From what I understand, prior to this it was completely legal to be nude in San Fransisco (or maybe the whole state?). Is there no state law about public nudity?

    Well from what I read the law is targeting men who stand on the corner and flash themselves, and grab themselves, etc etc. Clearly stuff that would fall under laws that already exist (IE 314). But 314 requires sexual gratification and (in my area) a victim. Those requirements make it a little harder to prosecute than a general nudity ban. My city has had a muni code for nudity for years.

    -----
    314. Every person who willfully and lewdly, either:


    1. Exposes his person, or the private parts thereof, in any
    public place, or in any place where there are present other persons
    to be offended or annoyed thereby; or,

    2. Procures, counsels, or assists any person so to expose himself
    or take part in any model artist exhibition, or to make any other
    exhibition of himself to public view, or the view of any number of
    persons, such as is offensive to decency, or is adapted to excite to
    vicious or lewd thoughts or acts, is guilty of a misdemeanor.

      The key to 314 is the "willfully" and "lewdly" Is a guy taking a leak next to a tree "lewd"?

        Of course not.... but the problem in SF had nothing to do with guys taking a leak.

          Since I never worked in SF and am not aware of the situation, what is or was the problem?

          My comment was merely about the willfully and lewd wording of section 314 P.C. not SF.

            Mainly older men that got their jollies by going out to public places (parks, cafes) including those places with many children around and walking around in the nude. Some would go to a cafe and just sit at a table completely naked and eat lunch or go walking around a park in the middle of the day with kids around. They think its their right to do so.
